POS Operator Shot Dead In Ogun

A Point of Sale (POS) operator was murdered by gunmen in the Oke-Lantoro region of Abeokuta, Ogun State, who are suspected of being armed robbers.

On Sunday, May 12, 2024, at around 7 o’clock in the evening, the gunmen broke through the area on a motorbike and opened fire.

The Punch was informed by a source that locals fled for their lives in a state of terror following the tragedy.

“One person was shot in the Oke-Lantoro area on Sunday. The men who were armed with guns came on a motorcycle and shot sporadically in the air, and before we realised what was happening, they shot at the lotto agent. There was tension as people were scampering for safety so as not to be caught in the incident,” the source said.

However, the insider went on to say that the scene became quiet after the cops intervened.

SP Omolola Odutola, a spokeswoman for the State Police Command, verified the occurrence and stated that, contrary to what had been suggested, it was likely a case of robbery rather than cult conflicts.

She named the victim as Mutiu Salako, who was shot during the attack by two armed men.

“The incident happened, but it was a suspected case of armed robbery, not cult clash as speculated by some persons. Two armed men were reported to have stormed the area in a motorcycle and shot at the PoS operator who was in his shop in the area,” the PPRO said.

Odutola said that the police would stop at nothing to guarantee that the escaping criminals were brought to justice and went on to say that a manhunt had been initiated for them.

“What we want the good people of Ogun State to know is that suspects can only run but can not hide. We will do everything possible to bring them to justice.”

A Gentle Reminder: Every obstacle is a stepping stone, every morning; a chance to go again, and those little steps take you closer to your dream.
